How to Manually Update the Boot Archive

If the automatic update of the boot archive failed, clear the error with this procedure.

Before You Begin

Ensure that your role has the appropriate rights profiles to perform this procedure. See Using Rights Profiles to Administer Boot Features.

  1. Update the boot archive.
    $ bootadm update-archive

    To update the boot archive on an alternate root, type:

    $ bootadm update-archive -R alternate-root

    Caution  -  Do not reference the root file system of any non-global zone with the –R option. Doing so might damage the global zone's file system, compromise the security of the global zone, or damage the non-global zone's file system. See the zones(7) man page.

  2. Reboot the system.
    $ reboot
